Joanna Sheen samples - Pressed flowers 1

Hiya Everyone,

Apologies for being a bad blogger recently but I have been busy doing stuff that I couldn't blog about although I now have 9 Joanna Sheen samples that I can now share with you so I'll probably upload one every day or so till I've finished otherwise it's a nightmare trying to link them all up into challenges!

Anyhoo, the card I'm showing you is from a new set of pressed flowers stamps that were launched on saturday on create and craft TV. There are 3 sets altogether:- Rose, daisy and narcissi. This card is made using the narcissi set. They are £9.99 eash set (free P&P) and are available from Joanna Sheen.

I used the narcissi stamp and coloured the image with my promarkers. I stamped each image 3 times for a bit of depth with the centre being the top layer. I curled the petals lightly with my fingers too. The papers are from a daffodil paperstack that I've had for ages which I think was a K&Co one. The sentiment is a wooden stamp that my dad got me on his car boot travels. A few green diamantes and a bit of ribbon and that's pretty much it!. I do try not to use too much stuff on my DT cards as you want the main focus to be what you are displaying so I try not to go OTT on punches and diecuts etc.

I will enter this into the following challenges:-
